It's asinine.

Babcock is losing more and more credibility each time he opens his mouth
It's just funny because how many plays has Kronwall been involved in where the puck goes the other way? How many plays has Ian White been involved in going the other way in the last 2-3 games? Everyone on the team has had that problem pretty much.

To be fair he's criticized Fil quite a bit recently as well

“Fil should just finish his check on the wall and the guy skated right by him and it's all over, and when you pinch (like Ericsson did) you got to get out,'' Babcock said. “The bottom line is he skated right by a couple of us. No reason for that to happen.''

“Fil wasn't good enough last night, wasn't competitive enough, and he's got to be way better than that,'' Babcock said. “We need him. He's a significant player for us and he's got to play better than this.''

The hilarious thing to me is he has said nothing about Kronwall who looks completely overwhelmed and outmatched as a top pairing D, or Cleary who has 1 pt in 15 games playing lots of minutes. If you're going to call people out call out those who deserve it.
